Another member of Creighton University’s Pathology Department was the victim of a crime the same day her colleague, Dr. Roger Brumback and his wife, Mary were murdered. Dr. Chhandra Bewtra says she and her husband had just finished a Mother’s Day lunch around 2:00 pm at a nearby restaurant when they received a call from their home security service of a possible break in.
Dr. Bewtra says they found a door slightly open but nothing was missing so they decided not to report the incident to the police. She says it wasn’t until after she learned of the Brumback murders she and her husband were urged by friends to call the police.
Dr. Bewtra is not commenting on a possible connection between the murders and her home break-in.
Dr. Bewtra was at Creighton University when suspect Anthony Garcia attended the school back in 2000 and 2001. She is also a colleague of Dr. William Hunter. His son and housekeeper were murdered in 2008. Garcia is also a suspect in that double murder.
